A gynecologist had a burning desire to change
careers and become a mechanic.
So he found out from the local tech college what
was involved, signed up for evening classes, attended
diligently, and learned all he could.
When the time for the practical exam approached, the
Gynecologist prepared carefully for weeks, and completed
the exam with tremendous skill.
When the results came back, he was surprised to find that
he had obtained a mark of 150%. Fearing an error, he called
the instructor, saying "I don't want to appear ungrateful for
such an outstanding result, but I wondered if there had been
an error which needed adjusting.
" The instructor said," During the exam, you took the engine apart
perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine
back together again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark.
I gave you an extra 50% because you did all of it through the muffler.
